Christian Families at the Crossroads 09
In July my father and I went to Columbus Ohio for the "Crossroads 09" conference. Here are the pictures you have all been waiting for...

This conference was probably the best one I have ever attended. The Botkin family spoke from the perspective of a family. I was especially encouraged by Ben Botkin and after the conference I went onto his blog and heard some of his music. I decide that if he could write music like that, so could I. Back in Oregon, I started a piano trio. I would put a recording on here but we don't have a cellist. Do I see any hands? Anyway, I want to end by saying that it was very encouraging to be there and to see the work that this family is doing for the future generation of Christians and for the glory of God.
